What is a Capstone project?

A capstone project is a highly academic and major project that is taken up by a student in the final year of their respective academic degree. It is the basic requirement for completing an academic course and getting a degree.

The main aim of the capstone project is to encourage students to showcase their areas of expertise in a particular field. The requirement of a capstone project demands it to be unique and innovative with no plagiarism involved.

Tips & guidelines for writing a capstone project

  • Brainstorming and coming up with a list of topics or projects.
  • Selecting a unique topic among shortlisted projects.
  • Choose a project which is relevant to your expertise and matches your course.
  • Choosing a project or topic which adds value and is challenging.
  • Take care of the feasibility of the project, choose a project that you can complete within a given time frame.
  • After selecting the topic plan your work.
  • Divide the project and set a daily goal and spend that time on it daily.
  • Make a complete overview of the project and spend time to proofread and make changes accordingly.

Selecting a capstone project can be a tedious task. Don't worry we have got you covered, we have researched and compiled best electronics capstone projects that you can start working on without any delay. Some of the best electronics capstone projects are discussed below.

5. Automatic solar tracker

 

The problem with solar panels arises when the sun moves from its position concerning time. The conventional solar panel is not designed in a way that helps them get sunlight for the maximum amount of time. So the automatic solar tracker comes into the picture. An automatic solar panel has a sensor that senses the movement of the sun and adjusts the panel accordingly.

In this capstone project, you will use the Arduino board and solar panel to build an automatic solar panel.
